MANCHESTER — The town is hosting an open house on the roundabout construction project today at 5 p.m. in the Kilburn Meeting Room at the Manchester town offices on Main Street.
Mike Chenette, the project engineer, will be at the meeting, which is expected to last about 90 minutes, along with elected officials and town staff.
Residents and others interested in the project to build a roundabout to replace the intersection or Routes 7A and 11/30 are invited to come to the presentation to learn more or ask questions.
Bids for the project are scheduled to be opened on April 10 at 11 a.m. in the town offices.
The project is not only expected to replace the intersection nicknamed “Malfunction Junction” but also rebuild sidewalks and curbing, remove utility poles to improve the look of the streetscape and replace water and sewer mains.
Most of the construction will take place, by contract, at night.
Following the certification of the bids by federal and state officials, a groundbreaking is expected to be scheduled in early May.
